Creative color still life

For this project I had to create a colorful still life of an everyday object. I decided to use a pencil sharpener. I started with a basic sketch of the sharpener and later went in with pen. Once I had the outline I used watercolor for the inside of the sharpener. For the background I used chalk pastel. I wanted to create a subtle background so as to not take away from the pencil sharpener.
